Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate


BV-OSC is an active form of Vitamin C which improves collagen synthesis.  While ascorbic acid is considered superior by many chemists, a major drawback is that it can be irritating and is very volatile in personal care formulations. This is why we chose this, much more stable form of Vitamin C which is easier to formulate into skincare and personal care products.


BV-OSC is oil soluble.  Some of its benefits include anti-oxidant activity.  It has higher bio-availability than ascorbic acid, which allows use of a stable product at lower levels while producing greater improvements in hydration and superficial wrinkle smoothing. BV-OSC comes in a clear colorless liquid form.


0.10% - 10.0%


As with all ingredients, we highly suggest testing in small amounts before use in a large batches and performing a skin patch test.  Even though the extracts are natural, everyone's skin is different and some may experience sensitivity.


Can be used In skincare products including skin lighteners, antioxidant formulations and facial gel formulas.  BV-OSC also has UVB protecting benefits.
